Denmark´s support to Human Rights and Good Governance in Nepal: Release of new publication “Rights and Governance for Development.”
The Embassy of Denmark announces the launch of a publication entitled “Rights and Governance for Development”, which through personal stories describes the impact of Denmark’s support to human rights and good governance to Nepal during the past 15 years.
Danish Ambassador to Nepal, Kirsten Geelan, and Chief Election Commissioner, Neel Kantha Uprety, jointly launched the publication this evening at an event in Kathmandu at Hotel Shangri-la on 28th January 2014. Among invited guests were representatives from the many Nepalese partners, who have worked closely with the programme unit of DanidaHUGOU.
Aimed at describing the long-standing Danish partnership with Nepal in the area of human rights and good governance, this publication highlights personal stories of some of the people, organisations or public institutions supported by Danida, and demonstrates how the Danish programme has helped improve the lives of women and men across Nepal through the many democratic governance initiatives. The publication also highlights the many whose lives have been directly affected by those efforts and portray the experiences of building communities, empowering citizens, giving voice to the individuals and having influence over their own lives.
The publication provides a glimpse of Denmark´s commitment to Nepal’s development efforts and recognises the courage, capacity and contributions of many dedicated individuals working to build a better human rights regime and strengthening good governance.
With this publication we also look forward to launching another five-year programme – Peace, Rights and Governance Programme in Nepal - for which the results and challenges reflected in this publication will provide a welcome guide as to how Danish-Nepali cooperation can be further strengthened in the years to come to the benefit of men and women of Nepal.
